A survey of more than 1,000 hiring professionals by Dice Holdings Inc., which provides specialized career Web sites for professional communities, indicates that 51% of respondents plan to hire more workers during the second half of the year, up from 47% anticipating additional hiring in the first half of 2012. The number of hiring managers and recruiters planning to pull back on hiring dropped from 30% six months ago to 23%. As of May, only 36% have seen a jump in voluntary departures, which is less than the 41% of respondents who predicted such an increase six months ago. According to the survey, 47% of respondents report a rise in salaries for newly filled positions, and 45% say salaries for existing workers have increased. Scot Melland, chairman, president, and chief executive of Dice Holdings, says, “When confidence in available career opportunities is high and mobility restored, the retention race will heat up.”
